As you all know this site is called Archers and Anime. So far I have been posting stuff about my Trophy Manager team, The Green Archers, and I thought it would really suck if it didn’t have anything about anime. So I’ll post one right now and each month, maybe, I’ll try to post different topics about anime that I really love. Of course it depends on how busy I am in my studies, work, or just feel too lazy.

For starters, I would love to make a post about my top five favorite anime of all time. This one is very difficult for me since I have been watching anime for so long that it takes time to figure this out on my own. In addition each anime comes from a different time frame and thus I feel differently for each one as I grow older. An example was Fushigi Yuugi. When I was a kid I thought it rocked. Don’t get me wrong, it still is one of my favorite anime, but I look at it differently now that I’m a lot older with all the dudes and romance. I love romance animes too.  

So without further ado, here is my top 5 all time favorite anime. 

5. “Cedie: The Little Prince” (Cedie: Ang Munting Prinsipe)

I was introduced to anime at a very young age. Something about 8 years old or so. I was a sickly and thus I needed to be at home most of the time. The character of Cedie grew in me.

I’ll be honest I don’t recall much of the side stories but I do know the main parts of the story. The story was of a young boy, Cedie, who grew up in the United States and was brought to England by his super rich grandfather since he will be a future earl in Great Britain. His Grandfather is the Earl of Dorincourt (Super rich royal guy) but is a bit of a cold person. He intends to teach Cedie all about being royal and to become an aristocrat but was taught inadvertently by Cedie about love, compassion, and basically how to live a happy life close to people they love.

It’s a must see classic. I think most Filipinos in my age group will agree.         

4. Captain Tsubasa

Why not? I mean I am a football and anime fan. So Why not an anime about football!

Captain Tsubasa approves!

3. Hayao Miyazaki Movies

The Wind Rises

Alright it’s cheating and not really an anime series, but I just love how the movies he made were so real in terms of being relevant and teaching us lessons about life along the way. So far I have seen about three movies already and all of them are very well written and drawn. Each movie shows a heroine which shows that Miyazaki appreciates the strength of women and how they fit in our lives. 

2. “Fushigi Yuugi” (Curious Play)

Fushigi Yuugi one of the best romance anime around

If there aver is an anime where I felt really strongly attached about, it would be Fushigi Yuugi. The story is basically about a two young high school girls, Miyaka and Yui, who finds the “Book of the Four Gods” in their local library. The book magically sends them to the past where there are knights and kingdoms of ancient China. Miyaka gets transported to the “good” kingdom of Konan which is a very developed kingdom filled with thriving businesses. Yui was send to the “bad” kingdom of Kutou which looks like a terrible place to be in since it’s run by mean looking and corrupt people. They meet people with special powers who are protectors of each of their land. They clash with each other trying to find ways on how the girls can come back to their own world.

It’s an anime about romance, action, some comedy, and loads of drama and I mean a lot of drama.     

1. “Fairy Tail” 

This is my latest anime craze. Fairy Tail is an anime about a girl, Lucy Heartfilia, who joins Fairy Tail, a powerful guild of wizards. Fairy Tail takes on jobs to help various people with their needs. As the story goes along they fight various evil characters, groups, and even other guilds.

I follow the manga and I love the variety of the characters and how the animation was done. I’m very happy about the second season of the anime which was done after Hiro Mashima (the manga’s artist) asked for a break in the anime for the manga to catch up.

I must admit I am a big big supporter of the Natsu/Lucy love team (LaLu for short). They are just so perfect and a good anime deserves a great love team all the time.

So there you have it NaLu, err Fairy Tail, takes the number one spot in my list. Thank you for reading.
